15,000 Balloons Promote TEDxAmsterdam (Watch It Live on November 30)

So what is human nature? Who are we, how do we think, feel and act? What are our lim­i­ta­tions, and how can we over­come them? What do we share, how we are dif­fer­ent, how we can be fooled and how lucky are we to be alive?

Those are the ques­tions at the heart of the 2012 edi­tion of TEDx­Am­s­ter­dam, and you can watch it live online, in HD, start­ing tomor­row morn­ing at 9am Ams­ter­dam time. (The video will stream from the TEDx­Am­s­ter­dam home­page here.)

If you check out the pro­gram, you’ll see that Dan Ariely will be among the speak­ers. He’s the Duke prof who will teach “A Beginner’s Guide to Irra­tional Behav­ior,” a Mas­sive Open Online Course (MOOC) start­ing next year. (It’s in our col­lec­tion of Free Online Cer­tifi­cate Cours­es & MOOCs from Great Uni­ver­si­ties.)

In antic­i­pa­tion of the event, artist Gui­do Ver­hoef blew up 15,000 bal­loons to reveal the true face of human nature. You can see what it looks like above.
